The World’s Unique Festivals



Syamsulariff has just blogged an interesting post on the world’s most unique holiday festivals.

The variety and strangeness of some of these festivals, some resulting in century old traditions, will make for interesting reading! There’s a cross section of countries from around the world, but here are a couple of the East-Asian ones…

Inazawa, Japan: Hadaka Matsuri, The Naked Festival

Hidden somewhere in the midst of all these men in loincloths is one fully naked man. Touching him is believed to bring good luck and happiness.

Lopburi province, Thailand: The Monkey Buffet

Every year, all of the province’s approximately 600 monkeys are invited to eat fruits and vegetables during an annual feast held in honor of Rama, a hero of the Ramayana, who, it is said, rewarded his friend and ally, Hanuman the Monkey King, with the fiefdom of what is now Lopburi.

Organisers of the annual monkey buffet use more than 3,000 kg of fruits and vegetables for the festival.
